Join him from 6-8pm at the Janesville Country Club where you can enjoy a great dinner, get your pictures taken, and possibly win a great prize. Saturday from 11am - 4pm, greet Lincoln in a welcome ceremony at the Lincoln-Tallman House. Come enjoy a day on the lawn with your entire family and participate in fun 19th century games, hear some fun live music and take a tour of the home. See where Lincoln slept when he stayed with the Tallmans and hear the humorous story of how he missed his train back to Illinois. On Sunday at 10am, attend a service at the First Congregational Church in Janesville much like Lincoln did with the Tallman family on October 2, 1857. Afterwards, enjoy some doughnuts and coffee with him before making your way back to the Lincoln-Tallman House for Rock County Historical Society's first-ever car show: Lincolns on the Lawn.
